Welcome to St Mark’s Versailles, a lively, growing and diverse community of people to the west of Paris.
You can find us at 31 Rue du Pont Colbert 78000 Versailles
Maybe you are visiting France and would like to come to church. Or you may be moving to France, joining the large number of English-speakers who already live here. Or perhaps you already live in France.
1st Sunday of the Month 9.00 am
Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer) (in the Old Chapel at rue du Pont Colbert)
This is a traditional service using the old Prayer Book; Sometimes we will sing a couple of hymns (depending on how many of us are there). The service lasts about 40 minutes. We are normally anything between 4 and 14 people.
1st Sunday of the Month 10.30 am
Morning Worship (Common Worship)
We gather as a whole congregation and tend to begin with some sung worship after which the children and young people go out to their own activities. We use some of the morning Worship liturgy but the overall style of the service is informal. The whole service takes around 80/90 minutes and finishes with Tea and Coffee.
2nd & 4th Sunday of the Month 10.30 am
Holy Communion (Common Worship)
We begin the service together before the children and youth go to their own activities. We use one of the Common Worship Holy Communion liturgies. The service lasts around 80/90 minutes and is followed by Tea and Coffee.
3rd Sunday of the Month 10.30 am
Third Sunday services are more informal. We are exploring new forms of worship which are more experimental and flexible. We want to stay together as a church family during our services on the Third Sunday of the month. So, there is something for all ages ! This also gives greater flexibility to celebrate special moments like Baptisms and Dedications. These services are generally shorter (approx 1 hour) and are followed by refreshments. We hope that those who are not used to church will find these services more accessible.
5th Sunday of the Month 10.30 am
When there is a 5th Sunday in the month, it tends to follow the pattern of the first Sunday.
